A co-ordinated project Monsoon Trough Boundary Layer Experiment (MONTBLEX) to study the atmospheric boundary layer in the monsoon trough region was taken up during 1990. 30-m high instrumented towers were erected at Kharagpur, Banaras, Delhi and Jodhpur. Sophisticated equipment like Doppler sodar and Kytoon were used at Kharagpur. Sodars were exposed at Calcutta, Delhi and Jodhpur. ORV Sagarkanya cruises were arranged in the Bay of Bengal. The India Meteorological Department set up new surface and radiation observatories and released special radio-sonde, pilot balloons. Using the above mentioned platforms, data were collected during April - September 1990 and after proper editing the entire data were archived at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, Pune. The DST-MONTBLEX data bank was started at IITM on 25th November 1991. The paper contains the details of this data.
